Jewiscal Workshop with Eliana Rubin
The Torah holds many stories that can be interpreted and reinterpreted over and over. Let’s write some musical theatre based around some of these stories! Join together in groups to learn about what a Jewsical (Jewish musical) is, how we can interpolate stories within one another, and create our own midrashim. No musical theatre experience necessary!
